of Havenwood Townhomes 4312 Westport Court, Columbus, Ohio 43228 and 7891 Oak Orchard Avenue, Blacklick, Ohio 43004?, Somali-born US PRA and terrorist who injured eleven innocent Ohio State University students in a jihadi attack. At 10am 28 November 2016 he plowed a Honda Civic borrowed from one of his brothers into a group of people in front of Watts Hall (2041 College Road North, Columbus, Ohio 43210), jumped out, and started stabbing with a butcher knife.

Artan was shot dead by OSU campus police officer Alan Harujko (1988-) hired January 2015.

The very earliest reports named him as 'Ali Muhammad

Artan and his family left Somalia in 2007 for Pakistan and then gradually roamed their way to the US, living on welfare year after year.

They were flown first to Dallas, Texas moved by the Department of State's Bureau for Population, Refugees and Migration (PRM) and supported by Catholic Charities of Dallas (CCD), Immigration and Legal Services (ILS).

In 2014 Artan was granted PRA status.

The barbarian spent two years at Columbus State Community College, 550 East Spring Street, Columbus, Ohio 43215 before transferring to OSU.

“The Lantern” — OSU’s campus newspaper — ran an interview with Artan in August 2016 in which he criticized the school for not having Muslim prayer rooms (????? mu?all?) on campus.

“I wanted to pray in the open, but I was kind of scared with everything going on in the media,” he stated. “I’m a Muslim, it’s not what the media portrays me to be.”

“I don’t blame them,” he continued. “It’s the media that put that picture in their heads so they’re just going to have it, and it’s going to make them feel uncomfortable.”

OSU is a gun-free zone.

ABC News informed that authorities were examining Artan's Facebook page. A posting mentions radical cleric

Anwar al-‘Awlaq? (1971-2011)

and says, among other things: "I am sick and tired of seeing my fellow Muslim brothers and sisters being killed and tortured EVERYWHERE. ... I can't take it anymore. America! Stop interfering with other countries ... [if] you want us Muslims to stop carrying lone wolf attacks.

By Allah, I am willing to kill a billion infidels."

Artan’s jihad was quite clearly “done on purpose” with multiple CCC as mute witness.

According to Blake Neff in an article published 1 December 2016, Artan was enrolled in a class focused on diversity and microaggressions, and was taught that Muslims were an oppressed minority just two weeks before his car-and-knife assault on his fellow students.

For the fall term at OSU, Artan was taking a class titled “Crossing Identity Boundaries (ES HESA 2577),” offered by OSU’s Higher Education and Student Affairs program in the education department, Student Life Multicultural Center, 739 North High Street, Suite 1000, Columbus, Ohio 43210. The class in question was dedicated to “exploring issues of diversity and inequality as well as their personal and social responsibility for building a more just university and society.” It was taught by Dr. Todd Suddeth, Ph.D.

A look at the class’s syllabus revealed that much of it is simply a catalog of alleged oppression in American society. Different class days focused on topics like white privilege and racism, and the syllabus was replete with reading assignments like “Dragon ladies, snow queens, and Asian-American dykes: Reflections on race and sexuality.”

In fact, just two weeks before Artan’s rampage, the class focused on the topic of religious oppression, with a particular focus on the alleged oppression of Muslims. Readings for the 16 November 2016 class included “Creating identity-safe spaces on college campuses for Muslim students,” while the 17 November 2016 session discussion on “Unpacking Religious Oppression” included the reading “Christian privilege: Breaking a sacred taboo.”

In a Facebook post made just minutes before his rampage, Artan cited violence and oppression toward Muslims around the world as the reason for his attack.

Another major component of the class was the topic of microaggressions, the small daily indignities that allegedly weigh down women and minorities in the US and cause them to be less happy and successful.

In fact, according to the syllabus, Artan was supposed to deliver a group presentation and paper on microaggressions the very week of his rampage. A photo posted by a classmate of Artan’s showed that he was in a group set to present 2 December 2016.

“Find at least 12 examples of microaggressions using at least 3 different types of social media (e.g., Yik Yak, Twitter, Facebook, Tumblr, Pinterest),” the class syllabus says for the assignment. “Explain who the target of the microaggression is and why your group believes it is an example of a negative remark. Provide an example of how you might respond to such a comment.”

Students in the class were to be graded based on the “quality of microaggressions chosen,” along with the quality of their responses.

Ironically, one of the stated goals of the class is that “students will understand and have an appreciation for individuals different from themselves.”

The savage was an occasional worker at the West Broad #3819 Home Depot, 100 South Grener Road, Columbus, Ohio 43228.

Obsequies were held 1 December 2016 at the Ibnu Taymiyah

According to a 15 December 2016 article by Peter Hasson, the Department of Homeland Security knew Ohio State University attacker Abdul Razak Ali Artan was a possible recruitment target of Islamic terrorists but granted him asylum anyway, along with his mother, Fatimah Abdullahi (1967-)

and six of his siblings, Senate Judiciary Committee Chairman Chuck Grassley revealed in a letter sent Wednesday to the United States Citizenship and Immigration Services.

While seeking asylum as refugees from Mogadishu, Somalia in 2013, Artan’s mother told immigration authorities that she feared persecution from al-Qaeda affiliate group al-Shabaab, and worried that Abdul and his siblings would be recruited by the terrorist organization if they remained in Somalia.

That knowledge should have lead USCIS officials to “conduct additional questioning better understand ties to a group that the United States designated as a foreign terrorist organization in 2008.” But the additional questioning, which the Committee describes as “common practice” in those situations, never happened.

Artan’s father, according to the letter, had been kidnapped by the terrorist group. According to the Committee, one of Abdul’s siblings did not travel to America with the rest of the family, for reasons left unclear.

Artan’s family spent time in a Pakistani refugee camp before entering the United States.
